Not the song.....
Where is Bertha?
Subject: a monster
this was the last addition to my '72 collection and am so glad that i stuck with it. It seemed, to me, that there was a good hour of music where nothing stood out then the boys found 4th gear finally and the last hour is just an unique pleasure. And what time of the morning did it finally end? I am so enjoying this site, its almost as good as having the band around live, Reckoning and Europe '72 were what cemented me into D.H. status and i can't wait to see what '73-74 bring next!
Subject: Phil and Bill
Gotta give it up to Phil and Bill drum and bass jam. Some tasty playing by both of them. Great quality on this one
Subject: A Plus
This is pretty close to the pinnacle of what they were capable of. The Truckin' > Other One > Morning Dew section contains one of the finest examples I've ever heard of creating new musical themes on the spot. I'm talking about the long B-minor jam that follows the drums and bass. The bass solo itself is one of Phil's most inventive. It all culminates in a spectacular Dew. The sound is very nice for a radio tape, a little overly bassy, but overall very clean and missing the typically distorted radio sound.

Excellent show and remastering. A pretty damn hot performance.
I was there. I never thought this was all that good of a show. Maybe because me and about 50 others nearly got our collective breath stampeded out of us, but I have to say that this Bertha makes this sound like I am hearing it for the first time.
